Moscow, Russia: Alexei Navalny’s wife said in a video published on Monday (Feb 19) that President Vladimir Putin killed her husband and vowed to continue his work, while urging his supporters to support her.
Meanwhile, Kremlin said that the investigation into the circumstances around the Russian opposition leader’s death is underway. It further slammed the “vulgar statements” over the Kremlin’s responsibility for his death.
On being asked about the probe, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, “It’s ongoing, all the necessary actions are being carried out. At the moment, the results of the investigation have not been released, they are unknown.”
The West has accused Russia of having involvement in the death of Navalny, the Russian opposition leader and staunch critic of Putin.
Some have even held Putin directly responsible for Navalny’s death, with US President Joe Biden calling it “yet more proof of Putin’s brutality”.
Peskov further said that Moscow considered a series of “blatantly vulgar statements” about Navalny’s death to be “absolutely unacceptable”.
“In these conditions, when there is no information, it is absolutely unacceptable to make such blatantly vulgar remarks,” Peskov said.
Navalny, Putin’s most vocal critic, died Friday aged 47 in the Arctic prison colony where he was being held on charges widely seen as punishment for campaigning against Putin.
So far, the Russian authorities have refused to hand over the opposition leader’s body to his relatives. — wionews
